I interviewed a few of my peers, come media experience and some less creative, to ask them questions face to face. I was able too acquire valuable information and review their reactions to questions and answers.
For my actors I will be using teenagers as those are the most accessible and fit the age of hobbies well. I will be using a male for basketball and females for the dancer and student.
For example above is shown the actors from Macklemore’s ‘Wings’ video and The Script’s ‘Hall Of Fame’.
One prop used for all three characters will be an alarm clock for early an start for their dedicated routine. The basket baller and dancer will use footwear at the start when getting ready to go where as the student will use a pencil case and maybe glasses. The basket baller will of course have a ball, which will feature in almost every scene of his and posters in his room of favourite basket ballers. Caffeine drinks will be drunk by the student on multiple occasions and books in hand in every shot.
This CD has a dark colour scheme of grey and black contrasting with the white figure of Cleopatra. This of course is due to the song title. Its a simple cover of the girl in front of a rough wall. What I like about this cover is there are two layers, one sliding out from the other one. The front cover shows the Egyptian woman, however her face is on the cover below revealing her wearing a modern black dress. It shows the contrast of modernity and the Egyptian era.
The aesthetics are pleasing and fit well with the bands website which involve the same colour scheme.
On the black it displays the bands songs on a simple black background. What I like is that they refer to the sides not as 1 and 2, but as I and II adding to that old effect with numerals.
Macklemore: The Heist
Macklemore’s ‘The Heist’ CD comes in a black alligator skin like cover with a the album title in a gold font in the centre. This is effectively simple yet stylish with the colour scheme of black and gold contrasting in a swanky way.
The same goes for the back with only the song titles displayed in gold and black gator background.
The actual disc it’s self has a crinkled gold/yellow design, which makes the CD exciting and the digital pack more interesting.
Nothing else is shown except for the date 2012 in small at the bottom
Khalid: American Teen
Khalids CD displays him stood in a simple white tracksuit stood by some rocks with a blue sky as the background. This suits Khalid’s down to earth persona. Its not flashy and he isn’t flexing jewellery or sat in a fancy car. It is mainly about the title of the song, above his head in a red and white that stands out against the sky.
The same is for the back of the dig pack with a side profile of Khalid and his song titles to the right of him. Along with these he also displays his social media pages.
All of the colours are the same as his website with a dark blue sky, blue denim jacket and white clothing.
